I think the smiley punctuation discussion is interesting, particularly
I don't like to use them, myself. (And I'm not trying to put anyone down for
using them--whatever works for you.) Personally, I feel that if what I write
needs an emoticon to defuse or explain it, then I probably haven't thought
enough about the words I used. Novels aren't full of emoticons, yet most of
seem to understand sarcasm and humor when we read it...Just food for thought.

But we're not getting paid to write email, so the emoticons
are a quick substitute for all the thought and effort that
goes into bringing emotions alive in a novel.
